Sony BDP-S4500 review


The BDP-S4500 is Sony's cheapest 3D Blu-Ray player for 2015. It also includes support for Smart TV via an ethernet cable, although there's no Wi-Fi option.

The Sony BDP-S4500 adds 3D capability to the entry-level BDP-S1500. You should choose this option f you want to watch 3D disks - otherwise the BDP-S1500 is the cheaper option. Note that neither of these models supports Wi-Fi connectivity.

Good range of internet apps ; Fast, attractive operating system ; Plays FLAC and MKV via network

Lacks Wi-Fi ; Lightweight build

The Sony BDP-S4500 is a mid-range Blu-ray player which can play 3D Blu-ray discs and offers smart-TV apps, such as BBC iPlayer and Netflix. It's similar to Sony's BDP-S5500, but lacks that model's wi-fi and screen mirroring. We liked its compact size...

Sony BDP-S4500


My first upgrade from a bog standard DVD player. Purchased this Blue Ray along with a cheap 5.1 speaker system. The difference in picture & sound quality is remarkable, even on a budget TV. Two niggles I have. Only basic operating manual provided...

Small and powerful. Love that it streams, too.

Would be slightly better to have it wireless.
